Before & After (10 min makeup look)!

In stead of posting my regular face of the day, I decided to do it a little different this time. The before & after pictures demonstrate why I love makeup! When using it, you really don’t have to look ‘all made up’. I don’t use makeup to become a whole different person, I use it to appear more polished, more awake and less tired. It doesn’t take a lot of time to do a full face of makeup either. When I do my ‘everyday basic face’, it cost me about 10 minutes. This involves foundation, contour and blush for my...

Face of the Day ft. Essence All about Nude (and news about Essence in the US!)

Giveaway: win a $50 gift certificate to Midnight Velvet to spend on fashion, jewelry, shoes or home decor. Go here for details. Today it’s all about Essence again! I mention Essence all the time on my blog. I recently did a comparison review on Essence’s All About Matt Fixing Compact Powder and Wet N Wild’s Mattifying Powder and came to the conclusion that both did an equally awesome job of getting rid of my shiny t-zone (full review here). Essence is a fun and affordable brand that constantly surprises me! Last year when I shared the news of the European...

My ‘FOTD’ (and a peek at my makeup storage here in Holland)

Giveaway: win a $50 gift certificate to Midnight Velvet to spend on fashion, jewelry, shoes or home decor. Go here for details. This post is going to be a little all over the place. My FOTD (‘face of the day‘), which products I used, how I store my makeup while staying in Holland and more. Oops! ๐Ÿ˜€ I’ve been extremely under the weather this past week. Just haven’t been feeling well: headaches, stomach aches, body aches, sore throat…I’ve had it all. This explains the lack of blog posts. Combine that with having to take care of a very active toddler…...

Face of the Day ft. BA STAR’s Spicy Natural Eye Shadow Palette

Giveaway: win a $50 gift certificate to Midnight Velvet to spend on fashion, jewelry, shoes or home decor. Go here for details. You can give me the brightest, most colorful palette in the world and I’ll still manage to make a soft and natural look with it. ๐Ÿ˜€ I can’t help it. I’m just not into bright colors on my eyes. I prefer bright colors on my lips and cheeks and lately I haven’t even been into that. I recently received this palette from BA STAR and I’m quite digging the colors. They are right up my alley! Purple, gold,...

Face of the Day ft. Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder (amazing!)

I’m giving away a $50 gift certificate to Midnight Velvet to spend on fashion, jewelry, shoes and home decor. Go here for details. A couple of days ago I posted this picture below of me and my little sunshine on my Instagram (you can find me there under Kizzyonline). Besides his cute face, I also noticed how my face was glowing! First I thought it was the filter I added (I love instagram filters!), but then I remembered… It was the Ambient Lighting Powder by Hourglass that I applied that morning! My skin is usually kinda glowing (oily skin…grr!), but...

How I did my makeup today

Even though I dislike the outfit I was wearing today (what’s up with all the straps?), here’s how I did my makeup. I’m actually thinking about posting before & after shots next time, instead of just doing the ‘after’. Let me know if you’d like that better or not. Anyway, on to the pics! ๐Ÿ™‚ Below are the details on the makeup. Face -Black Radiance Complexion Perfection Shine Control Primer -MAC Pro Longwear Foundation in NC45 (I so badly want to finish the bottle I have, cause I’ve had it for a while now…) -Makeup For Ever Pro Finish Multi-Use...

Face of the Day (ft. Lorac’s Little Lace Palette)

I have been so uninspired lately when it comes to makeup. I’ve pretty been doing the same thing. The only thing I’ve been switching up is my lip color. And ever since I got Lorac’s Little Lace Palette, I haven’t reached for any of my other eye shadows either. Boring, huh? Anyway, since this is still a beauty blog of course I will share! Here’s the makeup mess I left behind after I was doing doing my face. I hate clutter, but I don’t mind makeup clutter! That’s just on a whole different level. ๐Ÿ˜‰ And here’s my (boring) look....

Review: Studio Gear Holiday Smokey Eye Palette [pictures]

I love being a beauty blogger! I swear, every time I consider quitting (I have those moments), I get send something to review that I end up LOVING! That’s what happened to me this time too. I was feeling really ‘uninspired’, until I was sent a palette by Studio Gear containing white, silver, gold and coal eye shadows and a pink blush. Initially I wasn’t expecting too much (lemme be honest), but boy was I wrong! This is a really nice palette, perfect for the upcoming holidays and perfect for someone who doesn’t wear eye shadows often. Studio Gear Cosmetics...

My Face of the other Day: makeup breakdown

Hi everyone! Here’s the breakdown of the makeup I had on the other day, when I showed you my new glasses. As always, nothing spectacular. Everything is matte, not shimmer, no highlight or anything fancy like that! My nose looks huge in this picture. In real life it doesn’t look this big (I hope! haha) Here’s the makeup breakdown: Face *Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer *Lรขโ‚ฌโ„ขOreal Magic Nude Liquid Powder Bare Skin Perfecting Makeup in Soft Sable *it Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores HD Finishing Powder *Kat von D Lock ‘N Load Makeup Setting Mist Cheeks *Sleek Face Contour Kit in Medium...

My Face of the other Day: makeup breakdown

My Face of the Day (no glasses this time!)

When I posted a poll the other day asking you which Warby Parker frames you liked the best on me (thanks to all who voted, I’ll reveal the winning glasses soon!), I got a lot of compliments on the makeup I was wearing in the pictures. Go me! ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you so much! Some of you were asking which highlight I had on my cheekbones and under my eyebrows, others were curious about my contour powder. I decided to break down the makeup I was wearing that day in this post. Maybe you’ll see something you’d like to try yourself...

My Face Of The Day (very minimal makeup)

I haven’t been posting that many full face pictures recently, because honestly… every single picture I take of myself I dislike. No matter how great my makeup looks, I still find something I don’t like. Every single time. ๐Ÿ™ Today was no exception, but I decided to post the picture anyway. Just wanted to show you that you don’t need a lot of makeup, in order to look ‘fresh’ and ‘awake’. I used a total of nine items to get this look. I skipped my eye shadows, concealer and contour. It’s a very minimal face, but that’s what I’ve been...

Face of the Day: using it Cosmetics, Kat Von D, Sleek, Hourglass and more

Here’s another BORING face of the day. FOTD’s are posts where I show you the makeup I’m wearing that day (or the day before) and what I used to get the look. This is another one of my quick mommy faces, focused on long lasting products that are great for Summer! Below are the pictures and the list of products I used to achieve this look. Also, like my new sunglasses? ๐Ÿ˜€ Face *Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer (expensive product, but definitely worth the money) *it Cosmetics Celebration Foundation in Tan (this shade is too light for me, I ‘fixed’ it...
